Best by date of 3/12/17 so still got a little over 3 months prior so should be relatively fresh. Appearance isn't much to look at. Sort of a really dark ruby / slight brown clear beer with small head that quickly disappeard. Has a really nice bright, sweet aroma. Hoppy but not in a citrus. Is it piney? Not sure but its really aromatic and can't quite put my finger on it. Taste is chewy, bitter hopped and very west coast IPA. Not sure if it bitter from the rye malts, hops used or combo. Very rich mouthfeel. A good well made IPA for the old school IPA drinkers.

I was lucky enough to grab a bottle of this at the Black Sparrow in Lafayette, IN. It poured a reddish brown, almost an amber with light white head. It smelled sweet and of rye malts and almost had a piny hoppiness to it. Almost had a candied fruit flavor to it. It tasted great. It was a good balanace of the rye, malt, hops, and sweetness. Kind of fruity. It was full bodied and left a sweet after taste. It was drinkable but I'd only have a couple at a time. It had good flavor and was a very good beer.

At first, it seemed all hops all the time on the nose, with a strong resiny aroma...however, as it opens up, the palm sugar is noticeable with a small sweetness and a note of spicy rye. It's a good nose.

Initially, it has a really good and firm floral/piney bitter snap to it...comes across just like an IPA to me. Then, the slight spiciness of the rye is evident although not as much so as many other rye beers so I don't believe it's quite as prominent in the making of this beer...although still present. On the finish, the palm sugar provides a small sweetness that seems more evident as it warms and helps the beer wrap up on a pretty solid mix of resin and sugar.

All in all, very very tasty. I just wish it wasn't so expensive and hard to find!
